About The UKGF
The UK Glima Federation was founded as a non profit organisation in 2019 to further the growth in the UK of the little known Nordic Martial Art of Glima.
Also known as Viking Glima or Nordic wrestling it is a sport rarely practiced outside of Scandinavia. Steeped in tradition and ancestral honour the ways of the Norse Warrior and the skills used on ancestral battlefields has been a hard kept secret.
It is the purpose of the UKGF to honour and uphold all traditions by training instructors to a high level and ensuring adherence to our codes of practice.
Here you can access information on nearby instructors and academies, book forthcoming events and learn more about Glima and Norse history from our blog.
